A Short Scriptural Refutation of Calvinism

Because the people have forsaken me, and have profaned this place by burning incense in it to other gods whom neither they nor their fathers nor the kings of Judah have known; and because they have filled this place with the blood of innocents, and have built the high places of Ba′al to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Ba′al, which I did not command or decree, nor did it come into my mind; therefore, behold, days are coming, says the Lord, when this place shall no more be called Topheth, or the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of Slaughter. (Jeremiah 19:4-6)

According to Calvinism all things happen by the decree of God and absolutely nothing could occur unless it was in the intentional mind and will of God. Yet this verse plainly contradicts such a teaching.

I leave the text to speak for itself.
